Having a little problem arming the Pixhawk. I get two flashing yellow lights which indicates refusal to arm. When I plug the USB in, it informs me that the compass is not calibrated.
I am using the 3DR external compass. This has a solid red light on it, which I assume is normal.
I set the compass mode so that it knows its using the external compass, rather than the inbuilt one. I run the compass calibrator and it says settings were taken.
I do live in a narrowboat, so 20 tonnes of steel might be adding to problems, therefore I did the calibration outside.
I notice on the flight information, that when I move the external compass, it moves on the screen, but when I move the Pixhawk it also moves. Not sure if that is expected behaviour.
I also occasionally get a message that says something like altitude inconsistency. Nothing is fixed to the frame yet, could this be my problem?
Also, I have options to set roll and yawn on the compass. What should that be set to?
